Jake Locker 'Excited' By New Titans Offensive Coordinator Dowell Loggains
Jake Locker's uneven tenure in Tennessee took another turn on Monday when the Titans fired offensive coordinator Chris Palmer.
Locker worked closely with Palmer for two seasons, but now must shift gears to learn a revamped scheme under Dowell Loggains, who previously served as the team's quarterbacks coach.
"Any time somebody gets fired, you hate to see it, but I've had an opportunity to work with Dowell these last few years, as well, and I really respect him," Locker told The Tennessean on Tuesday.
"I really like him as a coach, and I am really excited to see what he brings to the table for us as an offensive coordinator. ... It means a lot to (Loggains), I know that, and I know he is going to do everything within his power to be successful and win games. He is young, and he is eager, and hopefully that will wear off on our guys."
Locker said he expects "subtle" differences to an offense that ranks 24th in the NFL while scoring 21.6 points per game. If the Titans don't turn the season around, there will be nothing subtle about the alterations ahead.
